Summary

A dark romance series

Ian Hart is the most wanted fugitive in the country. His gang is linked to the riskiest and biggest heists in the history of the continent. His identity is an enigma to everyone except me. Because, the night he robbed the casino, he set his sights on a different target. He took something other than money and gemstones. He took me. He stole my lust and then my life. All I have left is my love. I would’ve given it freely, but thieves will do what thieves do best.

Fantastic Story

I was immediately caught up with these characters and their story. I constantly snuck time in my day to listen to the audiobook. when the first book ended on a cliffhanger, there was no pausing to start the next book. I definitely recommend this series!

I loved this Book

I loved the story. The highs and lows of each character’s personality. I like that the hero showed how vulnerable he was when it came to Cas. I like that she was strong and smart and resourceful.
I like that Cas did not have to be perfect in health and physical strength but she was amazingly smart. It was tragic (spoiler) what happened to her, but it could have been avoided if she had told Ian from the get go that the detective was in town.
I loved that she was the one to save him!!

I was expecting more...

After reading the Loan Shark Duet, I wanted to try something else from this author. Honestly, it was "good" but not great. I had no difficulty continuing on. The story was engaging and the characters were likable enough that I did want to know how things ended up. But now that I do, it's doubtful that I will revisit this one. It all felt a bit lukewarm without any major boiling points.

Lee Turner Smith did a decent job with the story. However, Adara Stevens is the same narrator from Dubious and Consent. She's not a bad narrator, but she doesn't seem to have much range. As a result, her delivery was exactly the same as the character from the previous series. Sadly, that character was more interesting (IMO) and the continuous association between the two left me feeling even less impressed with this one. I felt the female narrator's voice matched the previous character, but I just couldn't reconcile that same voice (& delivery) with Cas, the blond blue-eyed bombshell in this story.

All in all- not a bad read. You can certainly do worse. If you do take the plunge, be sure to take some time between titles from this author to avoid the blurring overlap that I experienced from the female narration.

Love it

Wasn’t sure about the narration when I started listening. But I kept going and after I realized it was an accent it was better. New author to me and I’m hooked!

Beautiful

I loved it! I felt the love for progressive and traditional Africa. A beautiful blend of both worlds that coexist in the continent. A realistic depiction of love, in its people and nature that's so alive around them. A true pleasure to loose myself in this exotic paradise so well depicted for a blooming and enduring romance.

Painful

I couldn't even finish this book. The narrators were awful, especially the female. The story was just ridiculous.

Dare I say? Top 5 favorite heroines??!?

Review written near the end of book 2 Desperately hoping it stays as good as it has been.

This is series is the catalysts of multiple firsts for me. For example anytime I've gone on a lengthy, wordy, inarticulate rant, it's never because of how much I loved a book. So be forewarned, below is a jumble of super wordy paragraphs and run on sentences. I may come back and edit after I've gotten my thoughts in order, but it's unlikely.

OMG, this is the rarest of the rare kind of heroines you will EVER find in any subgen of rom. Smart. Strong. Brave. Prideful. Confident. Sexually experienced and has zero shame about her sexuality. Doesn't beg and grovel at the heros feet. She's not some doormat who makes you scream and cringe, allowing the H to walk all over her while she pours her heart out acting completely pathetic. While she's strong and prideful (AS ALL WOMEN SHOULD BE) it's not stubborn or arrogant. She doesn't stand up to people just for the sake of doing it coming off immature. She picks her battles and While there were some times I wished she pushed harder, she pushed more than 99.9% of all other hs in roms. She stands up for herself. She's also extremely independent, self reliant, kind, loyal, and empathetic. One of those people who wouldn't hurt a fly, but for the right reasons, she'll broke your f**king face...as our H always says just my kind of girl. She doesn't fall in love instantly the minute she gets some good D and has a sweet phrase whispered into her ear. Her love has to be earned and isn't thrown at the feet of our H from the word go. Once she loves though, she's all in. Also, she's beautiful and H is just breathless anytime he looks at her. So often, when a heroine is strong and has a solid character, the author is sure to write her physical description as plain or just downright unattractive, meanwhile in every single one of those cases, the H is constantly described as the most beautiful man on Earth. A God. It makes me lose my mind with there's such a gap in MCs dynamic. It just seems that H always have one up in the h in roms whether it's physical or mental, we always see H upstaging h in some way. Not in this one! They're are equally matched in every way. So incredibly refreshing!

I looove this h so much, that every single other part of this story could be awful and I'd still be absolutely in love with it just because of her. It's exceedingly rare we get to see amazing heroines. I don't know if I've ever read a book in which the h checked off every box. I've read a handful where the h has enough good that I don't loathe it, but the fact that nearly every single author writes such weak heroines in romances when the majority of romances are written by women really disgusts and enrages me. This author is NOT one of those women. I want to sent her fu**ing flowers just for finally writing an excellent representation of humans with vaginas. THANK YOU!

The H is great as well, but the h stole the show for me. Normally the H has to carry the story, because (not to sound redundant) the heroines typically have some major flaws or weakness. Not our Cass. You will not find her begging or groveling unless she's wronged someone in such a way that they're worthy of her groveling.

Charmaine Paul's is my new favorite author on the premise of writing this strong, kick ass, lovable heroine. The incredible side characters and story is just a bonus.
